‘Thief in the night' burial
of Marcos spurs protests

FM supporters say: Move On

San Carlos Bishop Gerardo Alminaza called for massive protests following the burial of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani in a secretive ceremony at noon yesterday, while victims of Martial Law in Negros Occidental vowed to stage mass actions.

Negros Occidental Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson echoed the statement of Vice President Leni Robredo, saying "it was done like a thief in the night", just like when Marcos declared Martial Law and arrested all his political opponents.

“This burial will open the wounds of the martial law victims,” Lacson said. moremoremore

He's no hero - protestors

Members of progressive groups in Negros Occidental staged a protest at the Fountain of Justice in Bacolod City, hours after the unanticipatedburial of former president Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (Heroes Cemetery) in Taguig, Metro Manila, at noon yesterday.

Wearing black shirts with placards bearing the message “Marcos is not a Hero”, the protesters condemned the late dictator's burial at the LNMB, and called it “a way of a traitor.”

Christian Tuayon, secretary general of Bagong Alyansang Makabayan-Negros, said they were enraged since the Filipino people have been betrayed by not letting them know about the burial and the giving of honors to the late dictator. moremoremore
